OK, so on the next push, the info/refs file should be updated. Note that
this file is only necessary if you want to run the "dumb" http protocol
(i.e., the less efficient one that does not require git on the server).

You didn't say whether you are trying to set up a "dumb" or "smart"
git-http server. These days you almost certainly want to set up a
"smart" one, and you do not need to care about info/refs or running

Yes, if you didn't push yet, then it won't have been created.

OK, good.

403 is an HTTP "Forbidden". Have you configured your web server to allow
access to the project? Have you marked the repository as
git-daemon-export-ok, as described in "git help http-backend" (or set
GIT_HTTP_EXPORT_ALL in the environment)? Is there anything interesting
in the webserver's error logs?

If it is still not working after checking those things, can you show us
how you have configured your webserver (presumably apache?).
